Bug: 960x540 DNxHR LB clip in MXF OP1a container stays as media pending after import and wrongly shows as 1280x540
We rendered a 960x540 DNxHR LB clip in MXF OP1a container out of DaVinci Resolve.
Upon trying to import it into Premiere Pro, the Project Panel metadata wrongly shows that clip as being 1280x540, even though VLC and DaVinci Resolve show it correctly as 960x540. After importing, the clip is stuck showing the "Media Pending" graphic and won't show that actual footage.
Rendering the same clip from DaVinci Resolve as 960x540 DNxHR LB in a QuickTime MOV container allows Premiere Pro to import the clip fine, show it correctly as 960x540, and show the footage just fine.
So this appears to be some kind of nasty bug from Premiere Pro with the MXF OP1a container and DNxHR LB footage at this resolution.
We're looking into this. Quick question for you: does your workflow rely upon MXF OP1a? I'm wondering if - in the short term - using the MOV container is ok. As always, we have more things to do than resources to do them so wanted to check with you about the impact of this bug.

Yes, there are some instances in which we need to be able to use MXF OP1a.
